Ionic temple-type tomb, Cyaneae, 3rd century BC

This is an interesting tomb, conspicuous from the valley floor below, but not easy to reach.  Its single column makes it unusual, as does the sarcophagus placed above it.  An inscription states that the sarcophagus was reserved for the tomb's owner, Perpenenis and his wife, while the rest of the tomb was for the use of relatives.
